In need of a baby fix

Stella has been sick the last couple of days and one perk is that she has been extremely lovey-dovey with her Mama.  My not so little 21 month old has been miss independent since she arrived.  It is rare that she wants to cuddle and nestle in with me as of late.  But the other night, she feel asleep on my chest and I relished every minute.  I tried to consciously take it all in because I know these moments are few and far between.  Although we are lucky to have two children that both sleep through the night now, I still find myself missing those middle of the night moments with a little one nestled in my neck rocking her back to sleep.  And I am sure my husband misses those moments too, deep down inside, he just doesn't know it yet...

So, now I am eagerly waiting a phone call from my oldest and closest friend, Emily.  She is pregnant with her first child and is now 3 days past her due date.  I can't wait to meet this little man.  I can't wait to hold him.  I definitely have baby envy.  But I am over the moon excited for her!


  1. He'll figure it out soon enough :)

    Love the high heel dress up shoes over the jammies!

  2. Kids are a blessing all the time, even in the wee hours of the morning...but that is much easier to see in hindsight! What a great reminder to enjoy each moment.
